If a part of your body is crushed in an accident then it is possible that you will suffer severe pain, and may require extensive therapy and treatment to recover.
If you have been involved in an accident which was not your fault and has resulted in a crush injury, then you might want to appoint an injury lawyer in Caldy to act on your behalf in seeking financial compensation.
What is a crush injury?
A crush injury is where a person’s body, or body parts is crushed in an accident. This could occur if you have been involved in a road traffic accident and you have been crushed between the vehicle and the road or pavement, or perhaps a wall or tree.
You might even have crushed your finger if it has been caught in a door. Accidents can happen in a variety of settings and can range in severity with regards to the injuries caused. Some crush accidents may even result in the amputation of a limb or body part, whether this is a traumatic amputation caused at the scene of the accident, or a surgical amputation which results in the limb or body part being surgically removed under medical advice.
Regardless of the circumstances surrounding your accident your injury lawyer Caldy will be able to provide you with the very best advice on how to proceed with your claim.
How your injury lawyer in Caldy will help
You injury lawyer in Caldy, like all the lawyers who work at Accident Advice Helpline, is an expert in their field. They will be on hand to answer any questions you might have about your claim, and they also know what details need to be established and what information must be provided in order to ensure that your claim is a success.
Some of the first questions your injury lawyer Caldy is likely to ask you are:
- Have you been injured as a result of the accident? This might seem like a silly question to ask, but it is important to establish that your injuries have been of a significant severity to warrant a claim for compensation being made. Your injury lawyer in Caldy may request access to your medical records to provide further evidence of your right to claim.
- Was the accident your fault? Ideally the answer to this question will be “no”, and the accident will have been caused by someone else. This means that they will be liable for the accident and therefore your injuries, and it will be against them that we make a compensation claim. However, it may be that you are party responsible for the accident, in which case a claim may still be made, but the amount of compensation received is likely to be reduced. To find out how much your claim might be worth you can take our 30 second test which you will find on our website.
- Did the accident occur in the last three years? There are strict time limits for starting a claim and you will be advised accordingly.
